"Museums that have the right stuff" is a museum's itinerary along the textile and embroidery in Umbria.
There are at least thirty museums in Umbria devoted exclusively to the topic of the textile or possessing artifacts in their collections made of fabric, lace, vestments, dresses, costumes and accessories.
The textile arts cross horizontally different periods and territories handing down skills and knowledge, often exclusive to women's world, and even testify clearly the daily life and public ceremonies, the household and the luxury trade, the sacred and civil rituals.
The production techniques taught in homes, convents and schools specially established, by the time provided women with a source of income and social redemption. In general Italian landscape, the Umbrian case is extremely significant for the range and quality of the production and dissemination of the products.
